McNasty Brass Band is a collection of Minneapolis/Saint Paul-based horn players and percussionists that fuse the Minneapolis sound with the spirit of New Orleans. The outcome of this fusion is hard-hitting dance music and high-energy live shows. Each player works tirelessly outside McNasty Brass Band as a sideman, some with national and international touring acts. That’s what makes McNasty special-- these youthful but experienced sidemen come together and showcase their compositions, solos, group vocals, and stage presence as front-men.

King Size Life, their first studio album (available January 27, 2017), encapsulates their live energy with exciting compositions, rowdy gang vocals, and rip-roaring solos. The only thing missing is their dance moves! King Size Life will be released along with a series of four music videos.
